I want to row in college mainly because I love the sport, but also because of the bonds you build with your teammates. The family I have with my current team is something I want to replicate moving forward in my academic career. This sport has given me some of my best friends and I couldn't imagine not having such a close-knit group of friends in the future.
I am a leader of our school's blood drive which occurs four times per year. We organize the drive with the Red Cross, find volunteers, arrange for set up, and many other duties. At the river, I am often put in charge of running workouts, ab circuits, and taking scores. My main example of me being a leader is in the boat. My sole purpose is to keep the rowers and equipment safe, this requires me to have control over my boat and be aware of everything going on around me. It is crucial that I am ready to take command if something were to go wrong.
Personally, the most important thing for my performance is keeping my mind sharp. This means getting enough sleep and eating healthily. To get the proper amount of sleep, I need to find a balance between my schoolwork, crew, family and friends, which can sometimes be tough.
There are many ways I try to give back to my community. I have been part of my high school's Interact club for three years, a three year chairman for the blood drive, and a leader in the local Moorekids organization. In addition, I volunteer at the swim club teaching the young kids to swim. I feel as though these activities are important because it gives me a deeper connection with my town and the people in it.
